2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at the Barrel Cellar - turbid orange - huge, frothy head - sadly, it has that mildew and moldy peach skin note in the aroma that was so present in the Surette Reserva - however, it also has some tropical notes and musky Brett character - soft carbonation - creamy mouthfeel - medium sweet tropical fruit notes - some straw/hay - musky/earthy funk on the tail end - sadly, some strong, bitter wood and mild butyric acid are also present - the worst qualities of both beers are showcased here - too bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the taproom. Hazy golden with a thin white head. Potent aroma from inches away from the glass. Leafy hoppy funkiness, bacterial wood yeast, and moderate sourness. Flavor was nice and funky with mild sourness, sour wood notes, pale grains, rye, hay, and a drying citric sourness that was nice and quiet and balancing. Finish didn’t linger too long, but was nice and pleasing, bringing me back for more sips.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ Crooked Stave. Pours a cloudy yellow orange appearance with a fairly small white head. Pineapple, a bit bretty, vanilla, light grape, lemon, slightly tart aroma. Somewhat refreshing, lemon citrusy, pineapple, light tropical fruity, straw flavor. Not nearly as much as tartness as Surette Reserva, so I imagine it’s a fairly small part of the blend.
